UEFA HAS ANNOUNCED THAT MILORAD MAZIC WILL REFEREE THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL BETWEEN REAL MADRID AND LIVERPOOL IN KIEV LATER THIS MONTH.
The Serbian official has taken charge of four matches in the showpiece competition this term, as well as two Europa League games.
Milorad Mazic was also the man in the middle for last year’s Confederations Cup final and the 2016 UEFA Super Cup, which also involved Madrid.
Liverpool have previous with the 45-year-old, as he awarded Manchester United a penalty in a Europa League last-16 tie two years ago, although the Reds still progressed through.
Milovan Ristic and Dalibor Djurdjevic have been named as the two assistant referees, meanwhile, and Frenchman Clement Turpin will be the fourth official.
Liverpool are aiming to win a sixth European Cup in their history on May 26, while Real Madrid could collect a third trophy in a row – and their 13th in total – if they come out on top in Kiev.
